He has his sights on delivering turnover of £12 million next year from increased activity in the North Sea, Middle East and Far East.
Omega is an independent well completion and intervention equipment developer and manufacturer and launched in 1998. The firm employs 60 people at its 21,000 sq ft office and workshop in Kirkhill Industrial Estate and plans to recruit a further 20 people in the next year to support its growth.

Mr Donachie said: “Omega has grown organically over the last 15 years, carving a successful reputation as a leading innovator and manufacturer of completion and intervention technologies. I am now focused on taking the company on the next stage of its journey as we have identified significant opportunities with operators with our practical and robust tool portfolio. We have the design engineering, manufacturing capabilities and field services competence to take a product from idea to installation and respond rapidly to client challenges.”
